The story begins with a baby straying into the “Birsey Forest” where immortal fairies live. The baby is named “Crouse” and grows up quickly while being watched by the fairies, but at one point, he was taken by Arc, the head of the woods and the head of lumberjacks all over the world, to know the harsh life of humans It becomes. Claus decides to live close to his brothers and leaves the forest. Outside the forest, the days of making wood-carved toys to please children with the help of fairies begin, but there is a monster “Auguwa” that can not be seen by humans, It does mean to children. Claus challenges the battle with Oguwa, but … (Fun to read from here!)
